About Bourton on the Water

Just South of Stow-on-the-Wold is one of the prettiest most tranquil places in England - Bourton on the Water, often referred to as 'The Venice of the Cotswolds'. Bourton is a favourite amongst tourists and is a beautiful place to visit all year round, especially in the summer and spring when the sunlight glistens off the shallow river that runs hipnotically through the village. There is lots to see and do in Bourton in the way of museums, a tropical bird house, and a rather special model village, but even if there were nothing to do at all you would still be content to spend your time strolling around it's pretty streets that are lined with gorgeous old cotswold stone buildings, and enjoying the pretty lawns and public gardens where you can sit out and relax, soaking up the peaceful atmosphere. The towns other main feature apart from it's lovely Cotswold style buildings is the river Windrush which flows through the center of the village, it's shallow water being crystal clear and seeming to add a certain freshness to the Cotswold air. Every so often along the river there are small stone foot bridges for people to cross to the otherside where you will find cafe's, shops, and places of interest. All of Bourtons shops are well worth visiting, each one offering the visitor many interesting items in the way of local crafts and jewellery and other such goods. There are some lovely cafe's too, serving exceptionally tasty traditional foods of the highest quality. All in all Bourton on the Water is a must place to visit, and it is such a pretty and relaxing place that you will find it hard to leave.
